The David and Lucile Packard Foundation
The David and Lucile Packard Foundation is a family foundation. We are guided by the enduring business philosophy and personal values of Lucile and David, who helped found one of the world’s leading technology companies. Today, their children and grandchildren continue to help guide the work of the Foundation.
Their approach to business and community participation has guided our philanthropy for nearly 50 years: We invest in effective organizations and leaders, collaborate with them to identify strategic solutions, and support them over time to reach our common goals.
We work on the issues our founders cared about most:
- Improving the lives of children
- Enabling the creative pursuit of science
- Advancing reproductive health
- Conserving and restoring the earth's natural systems
